Today, an estimated 1,500 protesters marched in Center City as part of the MLK Day of Action, Resistance & Empowerment March. Its stated goals were:
1) An end to the use of “Stop and Frisk” and an Independent Police Review Board that is fully empowered and funded
2) A $15 per hour minimum wage and the right to form unions
3) A fully funded, democratically controlled local school system.
